Densuș (Hungarian: Demsus) is a commune in Hunedoara County, Romania and the site of Densuș Church. It is composed of seven villages: Criva, Densuș, Hățăgel (Hacazsel), Peșteana (Nagypestény), Peștenița (Kispestény), Poieni (Pojény) and Ștei (Stejvaspatak). Densuș was the property of the Romanian noble family Demsușan Mugina, later magyarised under the name of Demsusi Muzsina.[citation needed] One of the descendants of this family, Elisabeta de Margina, married Ioan Corvin, better known as Iancu de Hunedoara.[citation needed]
